Trustbuster 11 months, 3 weeks ago on Obama's 'red line' blurred in Syria

I agree. This is a civil war and we should stay out unless American citizens are trapped there. We cannot police the world. Humanitarian interventionism cannot be applied to every distress if so then we should invade N. Korea and Iran. A pro-American govt. is unlikely to emerge in this situation given Iran's involvement.

Trustbuster 11 months, 4 weeks ago on 'Equality for All' focus of Law Day banquet

"Principles are upheld in the courthouse, and values are respected in the courthouse. The courthouse is the only place all citizens stand equal. ... I hope you will see what I have seen and that is that good things happen in the courthouse." Well Mr. Justice I disagree with your assessment. I know that Justice is suppose to be blind but the veil is very thin. If you look at the statistics carefully the poor and minorities do not often receive the same treatment in the courtroom like the wealthy or the powerful. Also powerful corporations like Phoebe receive preferential treatment by the justice system since they are protected by the 14th Amendment. How can a corporation be considered "persons"? Your friend who sits on the bench at the Federal Courthouse is not impartial to pro se litigants especially in discrimination matters. I think you need to go back to law school and revise this statement. This is wishful thinking on your part. There is nothing fair or equitable about our current justice system!

Trustbuster 12 months ago on Flint River under assault of governor

Why are the taxpayers having to fund these projects? I bet the one group who will receive these funds contributed to Deal's campaign. This is just like the idea for taxpayers paying overrun costs for Plant Vogle's reactor.

Trustbuster 12 months ago on Bombing suspect posted calls for Chechen independence on social network site

Maybe it is time to close the borders and really screen these people entering the USA. I can only imagine others like them are here and ready to spring into action.

Trustbuster 12 months ago on If nothing else, ‘Racist’ generates dialogue

It is freedom of speech. If you don't like it don't listen to it or buy it. Same thing for rap music.

Trustbuster 1 year ago on Phoebe to be impacted by sequester

Caviar Joe needs to tighten the belt on his salary. How about those off-shore bank accounts that Phoebe has? Maybe they can use some of the savings there.

Trustbuster 1 year ago on Law Day forum focuses on equality

The notion of equality did not originate in the US but during the French Revolution. Lincoln was influenced more by the French Revolution and Germany's nation-state than the principles of our Founding Fathers. Evidently these lawyers believe the constitution is a living document and not textual.

Trustbuster 1 year ago on Congress may be going back to work

The problem is that our congress is not a "do nothing" but now meets all the time and when not in session engaged in fundraising for reelection. If the congress only met a couple of times a year especially at the president's direction then it would be a "do nothing" legislative branch.

Trustbuster 1 year ago on Isakson: Port in Savannah No. 1 issue

Agree that our state stands to benefit from deepening the Savannah Port. The only concern I have is the environmental impact from the dredging. If this can be worked out Georgia businesses will gain newer markets.
